ADT Solar is the exclusive installer of Enphase IQ8 microinverters and batteries


ADT Solar says it exclusively offers Enphase IQ8 microinverters as part of its comprehensive home energy solution. You may recall that ADT Solar was formerly Sunpro Solar, a private solar-plus storage service provider that operates in 22 states.

This announcement follows ADT Solar’s and Enphase Energy’s recent expansion agreement to include Enphase IQ Batteries. The Enphase power system, powered by IQ8 microinverters and IQ batteries.

“A growing number of customers across the country are looking for a total home energy solution that enables them to generate, store and control their own clean energy,” said Brian Lynch, senior vice president of sales at ADT Solar. “We can now power parts of their home with or without a battery during a daytime power outage. IQ8 allows us to design and build a system that meets the specific needs of our customers and allows them to expand the system as their needs change.”

ADT Solar will use IQ8 microinverters in all sales configurations, including grid-tied solar, sunlight-only backup, and solar plus battery storage. IQ8 can form a microgrid during a power outage using only sunlight to provide backup power without the need for a battery. For homeowners who want a battery, there are no size limitations for pairing Enphase IQ Batteries with the IQ8 Solar System.

IQ8 microinverters also include the Sunlight Jump Start feature, which can restart a home energy system using sunlight only after prolonged grid outages that result in a fully discharged battery. This eliminates the need to manually restart the system and gives homeowners even more resilience.

Have you checked out our YouTube page yet?

We have tons of video interviews and additional content on our YouTube page. We recently debuted Move forward! — a collaboration with BayWa re to discuss overarching industry issues and best practices/trends for running a solar business today.

Our longer running side project is The pitch — where we have uncomfortable discussions with solar manufacturers and suppliers about their new technologies and ideas, so you don’t have to. We’ve discussed everything from attaching railless decks in residential buildings and financing home solar systems to large-scale energy storage value stacks and utility-driven new home solar and storage microgrids.

We also publish our announcements for the project of the year there! Interviews with this year’s winners will be published beginning the week of November 8th. Go there and subscribe today to keep up to date with all these extras.
